This cabinetry also contains an integrated fridge and pantry.
Behind the main kitchen is a sizeable scullery, accessed by a hidden sliding door.
Because the budget was tight, the specification of the scullery was pared back, but it is still highly functional, with everything the family needs for prep, clean-up and storage.
The material palette, as requested, is dark.
The cabinetry is cost-effective Black Wilderness from Bestwood.
All working surfaces are tough and hardwearing.
I used Neolith from CDK Stone as a feature for the island, and black Dekton for the cooktop benchtop, splashback and scullery, in keeping with the dark theme.
